Wednesday Sheriff Will Have Blanks For Auto License Applications; Delinquent July 5 Motorists are reminded that the drivers' licenses they have held for two years will expire this year on July 5. Anyone now holding a license should apply if he Wishes to retain his driving privileges after that date. Application blanks for renewal will be available in the offices of the county sheriffs, tomorrow. Auto is ta are asked to renew immediately as only six weeks has been allowed for renewal. The renewal form is much like the licenses now carried.* Applications are sent to Des Moines, where by a special photographic process the license reproduces the application. Three pictures of each application are taken. One is kept in the motor vehicle department at Des Moines, a second is kept in the sheriff's office, and the motorist is required by law to carry the third. The licenses will again be good for a two year period. A fee of 50c for each license is required. In order to avoid sending coin through the mail it is recommended that two or more applications be sent at one time with a check. Motorists who have in the past two years met up with the law and have bad a coupon torn off licenses may be required to pass tests which patrolman give here every other Tuesday. No test is required of persons who have never been arrested. The principal innovation of the new drivers license applications, as disclosed by Commissioner Karl W. Fischer, is a space where the applicant may attach his photograph, making the license, in effect, an identification card. The picture is optional with the applicant,, however, to be a head photograph one by one and one- fourth in size. The only expense connected with Che picture would be the coat of the snapshot which the appBeant would furnish when he appears to file his application.
